the ef one can fit but doesnt really line up with the ea dash..

i have seen a au one in a ea and it seems to fit better..
but if you have power windows au doesnt have its power window switches in the console like e series..

Yep AU ones fit, I personally don't like the look of them however.
What I've been mulling around is the fitment of an EL console lid to the EA-ED console, flipping over the hinge and moving it back lets it mate up to the front of the console nicely but there is a slight overhang at the back of the lid.

As seen in this picture.

Anywho, I'm going to find where I put the hinge for the EL lid and see how it sits on that so I have it finalized for the ED console install.

yeah it looks like it doesn't match up to the ea dash i have heaps of ef s**t lying around i might change the dash but i like the ea dash better
and i just broke the sliding plastic in the gear selector so know i have to change it (spewing)
als i wanted is the cup holders from the ef lol

cup holders in the ef/l consoles are fairly useless, anyway, IMO. :? the console lid seems to push the cups forward, and as you brake, everything spills forward. :?

yeh a AU one goes straight in i just cut away some of the AU rear vent tubing to go over the EA one from the dash then put two long screws down the consol bucket to secure it to the floor so no movement will have to get a pic shortly.
